Wind Map Overlay improved

I’ve just pushed the Wind Profile Map Overlay a bit further.

Go to your favorite airport’s wind profile map overlay. You need to go to the wind statistics first), or -as I do- go to your airport’s METAR (or whatsoever) and from there click on the “wind stuff” icon:

Ok, here’s an example. In the picture you can see Funchal’s Wind Profile Map Overlay:

Google maps from blackberry

I’ve recently updated the software in my blackberry and found out that they’ve implemented an improvement long wished for.

Now, when you click on a kml link, google maps for mobile opens showing the information contained in that kml file.

What this means to Meteo·Mobile users is that they no longer need to copy the kml link, open google maps, paste the link and wait.
Now, just clicking on the kml link will take care of all of that, automatically opening the google maps application.

Thus, I’ve updated the link and called it ‘mobile map’ instead of ‘kml’

I have not had the chance to check if this behavior is analogous in iPhone or other sort of handhelds, so feedback will be appreciated.
